* CoversAlwaysLie: Looking at the poster at the top of this page, one would probably be surprised to find out that this is not a typical Stallone action flick. It's actually a lot like ''Film/KramerVsKramer'', only with [[SaturdayNightLive ARM WRESTLING!]]

* CasualCarGiveaway: The classic "You can't park there/You keep it" exchange pops up when Michael drives himself to the airport and ditches a truck. In the {{Rifftrax}} commentary for the movie, Mike Nelson helpfully informs listeners that "You can't park there/You keep it" exchanges are legally binding contracts in over 15 states.

* PlotHole: It is explained several times during the Las Vegas arm wrestling tournament that it is a ''double-elimination'' tournament, where you need to lose ''twice'' to be knocked out. This is, of course, a convenient way to let Lincoln Hawk feel the sting of defeat and still come back to win it all, but the film ignores a critical aspect of double-elimination tourneys. The final pairing of this tournament was between the winners' finalist (Hurley) and the losers' finalist (Hawk), but if the losers' finalist wins, '''there is supposed to be a rematch''', since that was only the winners' finalist's first loss. That somehow doesn't happen in this tournament, since Lincoln Hawk is immediately declared the champion after beating Bull Hurley.

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Ever scene where Jason Cutler and Lincoln Hawk have a conversation has Cutler trying to deliver one of these to Lincoln, as a RunningGag showcasing his general jerkassery. [[{{Determinator}} Lincoln couldn't give less of a damn about them]].

* ObnoxiousInLaws: Grandfather Jason Cutler, who hates Lincoln and while in the right that Lincoln (a simple trucker) cannot provide to Michael in the way that he (a millionaire) can, still tries to invoke ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney and ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections in his single-minded quest to keep father and son apart.
